Fiona Eichinger (senior, Biological Sciences, BPHIL/IAS/global studies) will defend her thesis using comparative case studies of Bhutanese refugees in Pittsburgh and Syrian refugees in Berlin to illustrate how national responses to forced migration have differentially taken shape in light of global trends. This investigation prioritizes refugee voices to understand how national resettlement frameworks are structured to enforce expectations for a refugee's relation to the state (citizen figure), economy (laborer figure), and society (neighbor figure).
